My First Fiber Festival!!!

Welcome to a photo tour of my first fiber festival! It was an exciting event and I was so thrilled to be able to participate and have a booth.

These gentlemen were obviously woodworkers. :) They were checking out the spindles and knitting needles that my brother was selling.

There were great booths there from all over the place.

Many wonderful yarns. Just look at some of those fascinating color schemes!

Another shot of some of my stuff. :)

Oooo, some great fiber here! I bought one of the blue/purple/brown roving. You can see it there on the top rack in the middle. It was 8 ounces of fine wool/llama for $15! a GREAT price and it spins up beautifully.

I love angora goats. I think I took a few too many pictures of these two, but they were so cute!

And some adorable alpacas too!

A sweet little sheep. I didn't take these pictures so I am not sure what breed he is

There was an adorable baby Icelandic sheep there, Gavin was his name. It was his first fiber fest, being only a week old and all! That is his mommy, Destiny, she was very protective as you can see.

Isn't he adorable? He kind of looks like the felted lambs I have been knitting!

There were these great lavender plants too! Only $5 each and all different varieties.

I taught a lot of people how to spin on the drop spindle. There is something about spinning, it just draws a crowd. It was a thrilling thing to start so many people on their spinning journey. It was especially fun to see the young people when they finally got the hang of it.

Most of these pictures where taken near the end of the show. The crowd was pretty thin by then.

More delicious colorways.

More fiber festivals coming up in the future so stay tuned!


  1. Looks like you had a lot of fun!

  2. I can't believe we somehow missed each other's booths! looks like you had some very nice stuff. I didn't get much time to look around or I would have stopped in. :D

  3. I know! I was so disappointed to hear that you had been there & I didn't get to visit your booth and say howdy! I didn't have a whole lot of time either for looking around though, had to hold down the fort. :) Are you going to be in the festival next year? I'd like to, I think once the festival establishes a name for itself it will do really well.
